Summary

Fladbury Mill is a stunning, grade II listed mill, idyllically located on the banks of the River Avon, within 12 acres of beautiful gardens and meadows. The oldest part of the mill dates back to the 17th century, with the remainder of the property dating from the early 18th century. The owners of Fladbury Mill, who live in separate accommodation at the property, have lovingly restored the water wheel and the turbine at the mill, and this provides a significant proportion of the electricity used on the site. Fladbury Mill is located in the ancient village of Fladbury, in the peaceful Vale of Evesham, just two miles to the north of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare.

In addition to the water wheel and the turbine, the mill has many character features, including oak floors, wooden beams and antique furniture. The character of the property is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, three flatscreen TVs and a contemporary kitchen.

The mill sleeps a maximum of seven people, in four bedrooms, with two family bathrooms. Off street parking is available and there is a large garden, with the mill stream running through it. Fladbury Mill is an ideal retreat for families or a group of friends, looking for a peaceful getaway.

Fladbury

Fladbury is a traditional English village, located in the rural Vale of Evesham. The village Zas mentioned in the Domesday Book, almost 1,000 years ago. It is sited on the banks of the River Avon, with many interesting and original buildings and features. Cropthorne village is on the opposite bank of the Avon and the two ancient communities are linked by the Jubilee Bridge.

The Vale of Evesham

The Vale of Evesham, an area famed for its orchards and horticultural produce, has for many centuries supported a number of communities that have thrived on its fertile soil. Drained by the River Avon and with the town of Evesham as its centre, the Vale includes land in south Worcestershire, south Warwickshire and north Gloucestershire.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides'.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olympic Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century. Famous places close to the Cotswolds include Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Cheltenham, home to the famous horse racing festival, and the beautiful university city of Oxford.

Shakespeare Country

Shakespeare Country is a loosely defined region, centred on the world famous town of Stratford-upon-Avon, home of William Shakespeare. The region is located in the centre of England, also known as the 'Heart of England', and is well connected by road, rail and air. It lies just two hours from London and there are direct train services from London Marylebone to Stratford-upon-Avon.

With magnificent castles, glorious gardens, stately homes and a historic palace, Shakespeare Country offers everything you need for a relaxing short break or a longer holiday. Visit historic Warwick and Kenilworth with their magnificent castles, enjoy regency Royal Leamington Spa and step back in time in Stratford-upon-Avon, or delve a little deeper into Shakespeare Country and you will discover some delightful smaller towns and villages.
